Cha-cha-cha chia eggs.

Egg shells, chia seeds, soil, water and love.

Originally we wanted to make these with grass...we started saving our eggshells and got the potting soil, but we couldn't find small packets of grass seeds. Whomp whomp.
A week later while making a smoothie, we realized we had a ton of chia seeds right in front of us!!!! 
Bye bye grass; hello free chia seeds!

In each egg we put a couple of spoonfuls of soil in with a hearty pinch of chia seeds. 
We gave them lots of sunlight and kept the soil moist...yea baby.
It took about 3 days to start seeing sprouts.

Dennis thinks they look like dinosaur eggs! Roar!

Andrew thinks they make the perfect Easter addition!

Dinosaurs or bunnies?
Egg-cellent question.

Winter's a wrap...Happy Spring!

It's been a long winter.
We need some color!

We're starting the season neon bright with our handmade wrapped bottles!

They're a little tedious at times but all you need is yarn, twine, hot glue and patience!

Ahhhhh! So refreshing!

Shamrock Shake Sham-Wow!

We love our McDonald's Shamrock Shakes and look forward to them all year round but, sometimes we just can't wait!
This easy recipe is all over the internet and we had to try it out.
It tastes like the real deal!

It's a simple milk shake recipe! 
2 cups vanilla ice cream
1 1/4 cup non fat milk  
1/4 tsp mint extract (NOT PEPPERMINT)
8 drops green food coloring

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
Top with whipped cream and a cherry for that classic Mickey D's feel!

What's that you ask?
Oh yes, we'll be making these through out the year.

It IS easy being green.

Adding some washi tape around tea lights is too easy not to do.

Top of the morning to you!

Lucky Clover Wreath!

We love updating our crafts from previous years...keeping it fresh while using the same techinque.  
We turned our lucky clover patch from last year into a lucky clover wreath!  Tada!

We cut off the rim of a disposable pie tin and wrapped our clovers around it.

If you liked it, then you shoulda put a clover ring on it!
